According to our lord and master, Scott (heheh), it's a subspecies of subspinipes, mutilans, but this site is the only place I've seen that said. Hey, Scott, do you have a source for that identification?

Yeah, every place I've looked just says it's a subspecies of 'Scolopendra'...so basically, it's just "a centipede", lol.
